The first-ever retrospective of James Bond creator IAN FLEMING's life is set to open in London next year (08).
The exhibition, For Your Eyes Only: Ian Fleming And James Bond, will feature notes by the writer - who penned the original superspy books - on From Russia With Love, prototypes of flick-knife shoes worn by Rosa Klebb in the 1963 movie, and Halle Berry's bikini from 2002's Die Another Day.
The show's organisers explain, "We are looking at the phenomenon that the films became, because they offer another way of looking at Fleming's work. He has a sense of humour, he sleeps with far more woemn and he has much less of a conscience than the character on the page."
For Your Eyes Only: Ian Fleming And James Bond will open at the Imperial War Museum in April (08) to coincide with Fleming's centenary on 28 May (08).
